Oranssinruskea, samea, tiheä vaahto. Tuoksussa banaania. Maussa vehnää, hiivaa, kypsiä hedelmiä ja luumua. Voimakkaan hiiihappoinen, virkistävä.

jamaty (1445) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Color miel oscura, abundante espuma propia del estilo. Aroma dulzón y plátano, mucho plátano. En boca es lo mismo. Dulce plátano. Poco equilibrada. Sólo al final un poco más seca. Un poco. Fría se bebe. Cuando se calienta, empalaga. Hefe del montón.

Hideipa (24) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2015
D’un jolie jaune orangé voilé, cette bière laisse une bonne mousse, qui s’estompe toutefois rapidement. L’arôme est caractérisé par des effluves sucrées avec quelques notes de bananes. Ces mêmes arômes se retrouvent en bouche sans très grande intensité avec quelques épices, clou de girofle peut-être. Bref, Hefe-Weizen bien ordinaire mais qui se veut rafraîchissante.

Holmen1 (3740) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Flaske innkjøpt i Berlin og delt med Ovesen på tappedag: lett uklar gylden med tett fint skum. Behagelig hveteølaroma i klassisk stil. Smaken er elegant og balansert, med fruktig friskhet og den nødvendige knivsodd krydder. En fornøyelse å helle over drøvelen.

Holmen2 (2018) - NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 29.04.15. Muddy and greyish orange. Persistent white head and lacing. Refreshing aroma of green bananas, tropical fruits and grass. Similarly refreshing taste, with evident malt. High carbonation. Very quaffable.

GoufCustom (1161) - HONG KONG - AUG 16, 2014

500ml bottle bought at Biorganic’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.

Cloudy hazy amber honey colour with lots of dirt-like yeast sediments; Exposive three-finger head with crumpty off-white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and very fizzy carbonation; Very fragment aroma of malt, with strong wheat, tartness, banana, caramel, vanilla, bubblegum, sugar, strong yeast, cloves, light spices and strawy grass; Low sweet taste of light malt, with heavy metallic, wheaty tartness, caramel, faint mashed banana, low phenolic, light cloves, strong spices, earth, strong yeast, light lemon, quite strong bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Dry, crisp and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is good barley and wheat maltyness in a slightly thicker body. Very metallic (not too annoying) with earthy strawy hops plus its darker colour gives it a pretty strong impression. Fair caramel, fairly low banana ester, matching light sweetness and dry crispiness somehow ease its heaviness. Hmm… Hoppiness is strawy grass in nose. Earth, spice, light lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is very notable and quite bitter for a weiss, ended in an abrupt moderate-to-strong bitter finish; Dry crisp after taste. Bitter and earthy to mouth.

Comments: This one has that sorryful dark strawy look with short head retention, but you could never guess it’s taste is heavy all the way - metallic water, earthy bitter hops, and loads of yeast for underwhelming ester and cloves. It feels like a better version of Höss Weisser-Hirsch (that murky strawy looks, that’s why!), but too gloomy and heavy to be anywhere near the decent mark. Still drinkable but with some caution.
